(MENAFN - Arab News) The Riyadh Economic Forum has called for the incorporation of moral education on how to combat corruption in the school curriculum.
Delegates stressed that modern educational methods be implemented in classrooms to inculcate social values to combat any form of corruption.
More than 700 delegates attended the three-day forum, which ended on Wednesday.
The delegates also felt that such education should be imparted along with with religious values. "They should be taught of ways to live within their means and to limit their expenses to match their income," the report said, pointing out that soliciting any other incentive in exchange for money is illegal.
The recommendations were made following a session entitled "Finding ways and means of eliminating corruption from society."
Riyadh Gov. Prince Khaled bin Bandar inaugurated the event.
The forum also recommended that the Shoura Council be empowered to hold independent investigations on officials or companies found to be corrupt and recommend that those who are found guilty be punished.
The house also said the council's finance committee of the council should be empowered to launch inquiries into public accounts.
The government should appoint an independent arbitrator to handle complaints of bribery or corruption in dealings with government contracts offered to the private sector, especially projects such as construction of public facilities, airports, dams, highways and contracts for the supply of equipment and other large projects.
Recommendations were made for the adoption of mechanisms deployed by the UN Convention against Corruption,(UNCAC) so that all forms of crime related to corruption could be identified and met with punitive action.
The house also felt that there should be an online website to provide details of public tenders and contracts and that the public should be allowed to make any complaints on bribery to authorities retaining their privacy.
